This fantastic Gicleé print is inspired by Indian jeweller, Narotamdas Bhau’s 1920’s teapot and Adinkra symbolism.
We Brits love to drink tea! Having afternoon tea is a popular tradition and many people love to make tea in a teapot. It is believed that the teapot originally derived it's shape from the wine ewers and ceramic kettles that came from China when tea was originally shipped to Europe in the 17th century. The basic design of the teapot has hardly changed in 300 years.
Adinkra are visual symbols from Ghana. These symbols are extensively used in fabrics and pottery. The symbols have a decorative function but also convey traditional wisdom. There are many different symbols with distinct meanings, often linked with proverbs.
